Company A employs office workers, getting the I-9 and W-4, doing payroll, dealing with timeclock issues, giving out the W-2s, etc etc. Company A lets its clients use the workers on an as-needed basis, which could be part-time or full-time, and the clients pay Company A for the payroll expenses plus some additional fees. If a client uses Worker Z only part-time, Company A can choose to give her hours to do its own work or it can choose not to use her. If the client no longer wants Worker Z at all, Company A can choose to keep employing her or not. Company A sets Worker Z's hours and rate of pay (with input from the client). Is Company A required to register with the state as an employment agency or temp agency or anything else? If so, how does Company A go about doing this?
OK, I can wait. Is there anything we can do to make the question more likely to get answered?
